Christmas Dinner 2018

There is NO regular meeting of the RASC-Kingston Centre in December (Queen's University holds exams and no rooms are available).

The Centre's annual Christmas dinner will take place at the Mandarin restaurant on outer Bath Road in the Frontenac Mall, in Kingston,
starting at 6:00 p.m. This is to avoid the dinner "rush" at the Mandarin so they can give us a private room again. The reservation name is the RASC Kingston Centre Astronomy Group.

If you are planning on attending, please RSVP to Kim Hay (email kingston(at), so we have an idea how many are coming.
